I love the planetag. Although I’m not sure if I’ll use it as an actual tag, it’s on display with my B-52 tag in my diecast model cabinet. I may get them laser engraved on the rear as it’s prepared for this. As to the service from Planetags goes, I’m impressed. The first B-36 tag I received was almost unreadable and stained on the back. I informed the company and provided photos. Planetags immediately sent me a new tag that was perfect and told me to keep the old one too with an apology. Thank you Planetags.
Overall I love this tag. My only bit of feedback would be that I wish the design that's etched on was easier to see (I also purchased a P2 Neptune tag and it is much more vibrant) that being said I'm very happy with my purchase.
Nothing remarkable about this tag except coming from a B-36, so I assume it is "magnesium" rather than aluminum. If so, this makes it unique indeed. Still, this tag rates three stars when compared to other tags in my small collection.
Many, many years ago I was walking with my father and uncle, and saw a B-36 fly overhead. It was an wonderful experience for all of us. My tag reminds me of this day. Now, if you can only get more B-17 tags, and a precious few B-24 tags I would be delighted. B-24's were last in service with the air force of India. Maybe someone could be a tourist for artifacts.
My daughter loves it, and is constantly reminding me "her plane is bigger than my plane" as I have the Catalina key chain lol. But she now wants more of her own so what a way to start her collection!
Love the idea, great product and awesome packaging, love you get the history of the aircraft.
Love the idea. Love the product. Wish to heck I'd known about them sooner so I could have had a Titan II key chain.
I have 12 plane tags, half personalized for use half not personalized for collecting. Just sorry I missed the SR-71.
One of my top two favorite military tags. While never used in combat, a pivotal deterrent to Soviet Cold War transgressions. Sadly, Sep 1, 1952, SAC lost 72 B-36s when a microburst hit Carswell AFB, Texas. The MotoArt folks are top notch! You can’t get this tag soon enough.
I saw the B-36 in person once and it is massive. I actually purchased two tags and gave one away as a gift. My two tags were so different from each other but amazing at the same time.
I first heard/read of the B-36 in 1976 as an eleven-year old... now it my mid-50's, I like-to-believe it helped maintain a preferable modern-history during the difficult early years of the Cold War (i.e. it helped maintain a more-sensible, stabler, safe(r) world - imperfect, maybe - but no nuclear insanity - at least to date). And an engineering wonder, even if it has a military-leaning. Makes me proud to be a (modern) Engineer. Thank you for sharing! I'm sure the 99.9% went to the melting-pot for 're-purposing' = recycling, which in itself is fabulous, but sometimes it's nice to hold & appreciate a miniature piece of history. And now I'l less-likely to lose my keys. Good job! Thanks! Simon
My only complaint is the cost of the product, but i understand that nothing aviation related is cheap.
This YB-36 was on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum, Wright Patterson AFB until 1972. It was not moved to the new Museum that opened in 1971 at it's current location. Sold as scrap it wasted away. At least parts of it are preserved. It is a great piece of history!
I never imagined that I would one day own a small piece of a YB-36/RB-36E Peacemaker, much less one that was saved by the legendary Walter Soplata. Thanks, MotoArt staff for making this possible. You also have great service and prompt shipping. My PlaneTags always arrive in excellent condition.
I do not use them I display the tags along with a diecast model.
As a fan of the Peacemaker, I had wanted one of these for some time. An added bonus was the fact that the B-36 piece for sale came from the Soplata Collection. Purchasing was easy, delivery was quick and the piece was exactly as promised. The only drawback is I wish the folks at MotorArt would give you a better idea of where on the plane the piece(s) come from. And that is my biggest issue...which should tell you how happy I am. Enjoy!
It is a shame that Dayton didn't save this piece of aviation history. It sat at the old Air Force Museum until 1972. Fortunately, last week I came across this site and had the opportunity to own a small piece of this plane. Ordered Monday - arrived Saturday When President Nixon dedicated the new Air Force Museum he stood in front of another B-36, the last Peacemaker to fly. I am very pleased with my Planetag of the B-36.
Was a gift for my father who had seen a squadron of B36s fly over my grandfather's farm when he was a kid. He loves owning a piece of one of them and a piece of history!
Too good to Use
The B-36 Peacemaker is my favorite aircraft of all time. I've had a fascination with it ever since my childhood, when my late father told me his story of seeing one over Old Town, Maine when he himself was a boy. Never in a million years did I think that one day I might be able to own a piece of one, especially considering how few of them there are remaining. I was glad to hear of the Moto Art crew's acquisition of the Soplata collection's Peacemaker and subsequent Planetag availability. My Peacemaker Planetag is something I will cherish for a very, very long time and I'm thankful I had the opportunity to snag one.
